A project is in the works for one of the world’s largest social media tools and a large credit card company.

Twitter may be teaming up with American Express to offer specific deals and allow followers to make purchases by sending out tweets.

Organizers say American Express customers could sync their card with their Twitter account and send a tweet with a special hashtag to make a purchase.
